8 February 2000 ... Inspirations
I have been rather blocked here in the past couple of days. Which is
fine, I don't mind not writing when I have nothing to say. This morning
I felt the need to update and I wrote the most boring drivel I have ever
seen. Along the lines of, "I woke up, I got out of bed, I walked across
the room..." Well, okay. It wasn't quite that bad, but almost. :)
Needless to say, that entry got deleted.
In the real world, it has been the same. Paper journal entries short or
nonexistent, nothing creative going on. Last night I decided to get over it.
After all, I have all the time in the world, now that I am a jobless bum.
I don't have to be productive 100% of the time, but I can't allow a creative
rut to go on for more than a few days.
So last night I started "filling the well" with images, looking for something
to inspire me. Yep, sure enough. After paging through lots of Elfwood,
I found an artist I like...
KAido Rakaen. I logged off and drew. So that's my second drawing and
no one has offered to buy me a nice scanner yet. Maybe I'll have to stop
by Kinko's at some point.
Oh lord. Static Girl gets a new book about writing. heh. This one is
A Writer's Book of Days: A Spirited Companion and Lively Muse for the Writing Life
by Judy Reeves.
It arrived at approximately 4pm today, it's now just after 9pm, and I
am half way through the book with four or five pages of writing to my
credit. It's a good book...
